Last week, Michigan’s Attorney General Dana Nessel brought felony charges against over a dozen Republican figures for their participation in a alleged “false electoral” scheme. The charges revolve around accusations that these 16 GOP individuals conspired to inaccurately declare Donald Trump as the winner of Michigan’s 2020 Election. They are alleged to have falsely posed as the official electors, which is a first-time offense for a “false electors” scheme. Similar investigations into ‘false electors are underway in numerous swing states including Arizona, Georgia and Nevada.

The scheme was reportedly a part of a larger nationwide effort intended to keep Trump in power post-2020 election. Each of the accused faces multiple charges, including one count of conspiracy to commit forgery, two counts of forgery, one count of conspiracy to commit uttering and publishing, one count of uttering and publishing conspiracy to commit election law forgery, and two counts of election law forgery.

Meanwhile,  Arizona saw Attorney General Kris Mayes’ office initiate an investigation into a similar false slate of electors who had attempted to claim a Trump victory in the state in 2020. Mayes had previously intimated her intention to delve into such occurrences, but no official inquiry had taken place until now. Similar efforts have been underway in Georgia where reports indicate half of the 16 ‘fake electors’ have already accepted immunity deals
